Thoughts As She Starts To Fade. - Poem by Leah Ayliffe

I think I was wrong.
I think I believed I was something I wasn't.
I believed maybe it could be true, maybe I am someone special.
A diamond in the rough, what have you,
I daresay you once said such words about me in all your charm.
Damn it, maybe I am.
I think I was wrong to say I'd stick around in your mind forever.
Rather, someday, when this is all said and done,
it will be easy to forget me.
We are friends, the best, but time is against me.
Someday I will disappear
Quiet and subtle, like a fading picture that was pretty, but not enough to be framed.
It will be easy I think.
It will be like I was never there at all.

    In moments of great joy it is easy to think they might just last forever. Time has its ways though, and change is the only constant. There is a simplicity as well as a depth to this poem, a perfect balance and a very good write indeed (Report) Reply
